0 days here too, when I upgraded from my 27G to 80G. Moved everything, inkluding fish over and everything survived. Had a litle bit amonia after 3 days but it was almost nothing and a waterchange took care of it. All the extra LR I added was cured from a LFS I trust.
Like others said, if the LR is really cured there should be no problem.

Actually i got a pamphlet from a guy i know really well from my lfs who has been in business for over 15 years, which around here is a pretty long time. It's a 14 day cycle that doesn't use damsels or shrimp and can be used on tanks set up from scratch. If you guys want i can put it in here to help out.... It is guarenteed to cycle within 14 days and is the only cycling process this guy does. let me know if you want me to put the procedure down so you guess can look at it

I think I'm getting there pretty good. this is day 7 and my ammonia is coming down.

I used 50# of very fresh smelling rock from a good Walt-Smith source and 25# of live sand in my 55 gal. I also through in 5 Damsels and they're doing fine. Darn they eat.
